Rain Helps Kansas Crops but More is Needed

KSCB News - August 12, 2014 5:52 am

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – A new report says Kansas crops need more moisture despite widespread rain over most of the state last week.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported Monday that subsoil moisture is short to very short across 51 percent of Kansas. Topsoil moisture conditions are only a bit better with 40 percent of the state still short of what is needed.

Stock water supplies are adequate or surplus across 75 percent of the state.

The agency rated the condition of the Kansas corn crop as 14 percent poor to very poor, 31 percent fair, 42 percent good and 13 percent excellent.

Sorghum is rated as 11 percent poor to very poor, 33 percent fair, 48 percent good and 8 percent excellent.
